The Importance of the Governance Role in Achieving Stability and Sustainability in Family Business Companies Through Generations

Samir A. Abdelaziz


Family businesses have continued to draw researchers' attention due to their strategies while making sustainable decisions. Notably, these business models deserve more recognition in this discourse, considering that they contribute up to 70% of the global Domestic Product. This article focuses on some drivers to sustainable decisions revolving around three pillars: environmental, social, and economic. The author's aim in this context is to provide a statistical model that could be used to forecast revenue trends to establish if family businesses are poised for sustainability or not. The models essentially allow for an analysis of the relationship between family businesses' internal drivers with corresponding financial objectives.
However, these business models may fail to achieve their objectives if they do not embrace good governance, allowing them to react to challenges. Corporate governance is an essential framework that companies use to reconcile individual, community, business owners, and shareholders' interests in a dynamic global economy. Companies that align with the principles of good governance are more likely to remain sustainable, stable, and profitable. In retrospect, business enterprises that ignore the provisions of corporate governance risk facing uncertainties, most notably, dissolution and bankruptcy. The second, third, and subsequent generations fail to internalize and advance the founder's long-term organizational goals.
This study adds to the existing literature on economic sustainability of family businesses characterized by market value and higher revenue generation.
